Hunter, who was serving as a juvenile judge until she was suspended after her criminal charges came down, could be facing up to 13 years in prison for the collection of charges she is facing. The charges include evidence tampering, forgery, theft and more. To appreciate the complexity of the case, I recommend the thorough break-down story at Cincinnati.com.
It’s expected to take several weeks. I’ll be watching as closely as I can from Florida, as the witness lists involve several prominent names, and several friends of this blog. Hunter is the rare judge to have major conflicts with both the prosecutor’s and public defender’s offices: special prosecutors Merlyn Shiverdecker and R. Scott Croswell III are handling the prosecution. This could be the trial of the decade in Cincinnati. #badjudge
